Here's a healthy dinner on the go, an easy sandwich you can pack up and take in the car when you're rushing the kids off to soccer or band. It's also a quick favorite when the adults just want to hang out on the deck on Saturday night with a pitcher of sangria on the side.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

  • Whisk lemon juice, oil, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Place steak in a shallow dish and pour half the dressing over it. Let marinate at room temperature, turning once, for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the salad by adding lettuce, cucumber and tomato to the remaining dressing in the bowl; toss to coat.

  • Transfer the meat to a broiling pan. Broil for 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until it reaches desired doneness. Transfer to a cutting board, let rest for 3 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain. Mix the meat with the salad and fill each pita. Serve immediately.


Tip: Warm pitas on the bottom rack of the oven while the steak is broiling.

This recipe is essentially a lemon-mustard marinade and dressing. Just use whatever meat and salad that you would like. We recommend NY steak for broiling. We ended up using all of it for the marinade so I'd recommend increasing the amount. I didn't really taste the marinade and the steak turned out chewy but the EW meal plan for this recipe lets me eat medium-rare steak for lunch and that's fine with me! (: Read More
